‘Jihad Kids’ are Great Threat When Returning to Netherlands

The National Coordinator for Counter-terrorism and Security, Dick Schoof, says that there are about 80 children of Dutch jihadists who are growing up in ISIS territory.  Dutch security forces are concerned that these youngsters are already a threat to the Netherlands.  The Dutch General Intelligence Service, AIVD, monitors children from the age of 9 because they are used to commit attacks in Iraq and Syria.  The AIVD says that these children are trained to use weapons and make explosives and are brain-washed in jihad classes.  At least 280 Dutch people travelled to Syria to join ISIS.  50 of them have since returned to the Netherlands.  More are expected in view of the increasingly problematic ISIS situation of ISIS on the ground in Syria and Iraq.
